5:03 am
they will now have to present a doctor's note. >> we have through the investigative process we are starting on each individual who may have taken this action without the appropriate level of sickness, to have prevented that. we don't believe that that many people could be sick, obviously. this is not a legal process for them to follow. >> reporter: now, for commuters, some of the waits were an hour or more yesterday. once their ride came it was often jam-packed. the city has lost allotted of hev -- a lot of revenue as well this week. the union leader said the city may seek damages against the union as a whole but the union maintains that it did not direct, authorize or participate in this strike. again, we'll have the numbers for you on this morning's commute as soon as we hear back from muni's spokesman today. live in san francisco, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> bart will honor all muni fares between the daly city and embarcadero stations. november's race for governor of california set now. the incumbent jerry brown

5:05 am
went too far. sam liccardo is considered a reed ally and even though 70% of the voters supported measure b, do they want to stay on this current path or head in a different direction? cortese says the voters called 911 and are asking for change. >> people are tired of unsafe neighborhoods. there's [ indiscernible ] with city hall. they don't want to see police officers leaving at a rate of 100 per year ♪[ music ] >> and we are starting to see that in the way the election went today. this is what people are asking for and i don't think that's going to change between now and november. >> reporter: as for one of the most talked about congressional races in the country between honda and ro khanna, it wasn't much of a race. mike honda got twice as many votes on khanna and put a damper on the post-election party. khanna said the fight has just begun. >> thank you. here's a look at the latest numbers in that congressional race. honda finished far ahead of ro

5:07 am
elevator and both guard are involved. one of those guards then grabs the boy's wheelchair, pulls it into the elevator and the doors close. this was the first video released of the incident. it is from a camera at the end of a hallway. it's from much further away. it only showed the one security guard involved. the second guard in the new video is on administrative leave while the incident is under investigation. 5:07 now. an uber driver arrested for apparent kidnapping. lapd says the driver picked up a woman from an l.a. nightclub. she was too drunk to tell the driver where to go so he drove her to a motel miles away and when the woman woke up the next morning and saw him in the motel room, she ran to a 7- eleven and called the police. for days the fbi said ryan chamberlain of san francisco was armed and dangerous a kpix 5's joe vazquez explains why the fbi believes he was such a threat. >> reporter: it wasn't until ryan chamberlain faced the judge that we found out exactly what the feds say they found
5:08 am
inside his apartment: as glass jar, ball bearings and screws and a circuit board configured as a remote-controlled receiver. >> the only reason you would have ball bearings in any type of bomb would be to maim and kill people just like in the boston marathon bombings. >> reporter: retired fbi special agent rick smith says chamberlain is an unusual terrorism suspect in that he doesn't appear to espouse any sort of radical political or religious beliefs which makes the case even that much more mysterious. >> it's not explained at this point at least in public would be what his motives are and what his targets are, which is pretty important. >> reporter: chamberlain was arrested last night after being on the run for three days. the fbi thanked the public for calling in hundreds of tips from around the country. >> we believe any threat to public safety has been mitigated in this case. >> reporter: joe vazquez, kpix 5.

5:17 am

unconfirmed tornadoes that t the region yesterday. some harsh weather pelting the midwest. unconfirmed tornadoes hit nebraska. the same storm system brought flooding to omaha, other parts of the midwest hit with hailstones some more than an inch in diameter. not even free pot was enough to entice voters to turn out. at least 20 dispensaries in san jose offered free or discounted medical marijuana for customers who showed proof that they voted. it was their weed for votes program. but the statewide turnout was dismal. it may have been the lowest in california history. it turned out only 25 to 30%. so not a huge turnout for yesterday's primary but some interesting races and it set up a few good faceoffs coming up in november. political analyst melissa griffin-caen joins us to talk about the results. you had like an election night party? >> twice a year we get
5:45 am
together and go crazy. >> what is the big surprise? leland yee? the guy got 10% of the vote and he is on federal corruption charges. >> unbelievable! he has already withdrawn from the race. he still ends up getting 300,000 votes. he got 10% of the votes beating five other perfectly qualified candidates. there are a lot of theories about why this might have happened. people might have been casting a protest vote, everybody is a crook i might as well vote for one who is clearly a crook. maybe it was a bit of kardashian effect to say what's more important than being the most qualified candidate is being the candidate people have heard of even if it's not necessarily good news. so that might have played into it, as well. >> we talked to you on monday you said he would probably get about how many votes? >> i guessed 20,000 and was woefully off the mark. somewhere leland yee owes me 40 bucks.
5:46 am
>> good luck. >> it was a good night for incumbents? >> it was. jerry brown got more votes than any candidate. lieutenant governor newsom did well. also kamala harris sailed right back into a november runoff. so we saw the stalwart democrat incumbents did well. no good news except neel kashkari will be going against jerry brown bringing in a lot of gop nationwide money and attention to that governor's race. it's going to be a lot more important because the gop does want to focus some attention on neel kashkari as an interesting new candidate. >> explain to the viewers. top two go off from the primary, right? so they will go up against each other in november? >> a lot of people were predicting that because that's how it works. instead of one designated republican versus one designated democrat, whoever gets the top two votes wins. however, in this case, because you had a number of democrats running in these races, they
5:47 am
were all sort of fighting over the nonrepublicans. republicans though came out and elected their people so what you see is in november you're going to see republicans versus democrats, you're not going to see as much d-on-d action as you might have expected if you asked people elsewhere, hey, what do you think is going to happen in california? we are going to see republicans versus democrats to a large extent in november. of course, though, we have at least one or two really interesting democrat-on- democrat races including the ro khanna-mike honda congressional race down in silicon valley which is also going to be one to watch. you will get lots of national attention on that particular congressional race. >> that is the race to watch. >> it certainly is. that one and the governor's race even though -- they may seem like foregone conclusions, but they represent something to the voters and to their constituents. >> absolutely. melissa, thank you so much. >> thanks for having me. 5:47. let's check the roads. >> okay. thanks, guys. and outside we go, i have been watching this accident near the dublin interchange.
5:48 am
we can't see it in our camera anymore because the fog is so thick we can't see the cars but the accident is there westbound 580 before you reach the dublin interchange. two left lanes are blocked and they are saying the tow crews can't even get on scene until closer to 6:15. that's what it looks like out the door. be extra careful this morning through the livermore valley and all along the westbound 580 corridor. here's a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. they must have just turned on the metering lights within the last few minutes. at last check they hadn't but delays have filled in in the fast lanes, as well. that's the first indicator that they turned on the metering lights. they turned it on the last couple of weeks around 5:45. you can see the drive time through the altamont pass is heavy because of the accident approaching the dublin interchange. the nimitz and 80 so far still look good on your other east bay routes. the tweets keep pouring in on muni on the latest on this sickout, the muni sickout day 3 now. so it shouldn't be as bad as yesterday. we have seen a slight improvement with every passing day. in fact, all limited and

digital in redding. 95 in sacramento. 96 ukiah. so here we go. low clouds and fog breaking up, probably just partly cloudy skies along the coastline this afternoon. so not as gray as it has been. not going to get away from the fog entirely, still going to see some night and morning low clouds and fog the next five to seven days and lots of sunshine in the afternoon. 80s in the south bay, 60s toward the coastline. mid- to upper 80s into the east bay. and then as you head inside the bay, 73 in oakland today, mostly sunny. 70 in alameda. and about 80 in san rafael. your sunrise time is 5:49. sunset 8:28. and looking out over the next few days we are going to heat things up probably going to see these temperatures max out over the weekend maybe some mid-90s inland, still some 60s and 70s toward the coastline and then we'll slowly cool things down toward monday and tuesday. but really, the next five to seven days just some minor fluctuations of the weather pattern. >> not too bad, lawrence. thank you. we'll be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
